About This Poem

Sweet Cyanide

That girl is poison 
Your heart trapped by desire
She seems really sweet
Yet she burns you like fire

A vision in white
With long flowing hair
You know she's trouble
But still you don't care

She beckons you forward
She says "taste my lips"
Revealing her bosom
Guides your hands to her hips

Her magic fills you
A pathway to death
Once you taste Cyanide
She takes away your breath

    Sometimes what we desire most is that which is the worst for us. Well done.

    Reminds me of the seductress that Solomon warns his son about in Proverbs 5 - 7.... best to stay away. Great poem, Rick.

    Hah! I have a feeling from the smiles within the framework of you poem that you'll die a happy, contented man.

    An old Hip Hop song in the early 90s: Poison by Bell Biv Devoe...very fitting for this piece and a damn great song. Toxic, poisonous girls, no thank you. Dated a few, no regrets. But, never again. Nicely written. :)
